Have there been times in your life where you thought it's time for a change and all you hear is "You wanna do WHAT??" A career change, a new business idea you want to implement or a life change that may seem so radical to your friends and family that you have a hard time "selling" your idea or your vision of what could be. Have you been deterred from doing something that truly excites you and ignites your passion? Is it those nasty gremlins that keep creeping up? Does it seem impossible or perhaps not worth the effort involved? Have your excuses ever become a way of living? Are you truly living at this point or are you settling?
Many of you have other people to consider when contemplating major change. You want to ensure that you take their perspective into consideration especially if they will be affected by "your" change. At the same time you don't want to lose momentum for reaching your desired outcome. Unless you are a lotto winner, it's likely that you have some financial responsibilities to consider when making important career or life changes. Maybe you need to take out a loan to go back to school or to buy a cottage or move to the promise land. You may also have specific fears or gremlins and they may have nothing to do with money. There is no shortage of questions and various scenarios running through your mind. Sounds like quite the balancing act and one that many people are faced with whenever major change is involved.
The next time you are facing one of these hurdles, try working with a Life Coach. Through use of different tools and techniques, an effective Coach will help you to first identify and then conquer those fears. Your Coach will ensure that your core values are properly aligned to your goals through value identification. Using a series of thought provoking questions, they will challenge you and help you to determine through clarification where the right balance is for you so that you can find peace in your decisions and in your actions. Unlike your friends and family who want to offer you advice, your Coach is going to work with you to ensure that the answers and the path forward comes from within.
As Tommy Lasorda said "The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination"
